For discerning consumers and well known contract installations, a blend of at least 80% wool is the preferred choice. Wool rich carpets grace some of the most prestigious locations and homes in the world – and it is no wonder considering the benefits of wool rich carpet:

Resilience – It wears very well

Appearance Retention – It looks good for longer

Luxury – It is naturally soft and warm and comfortable underfoot

Sound – Impact sound is significantly reduced as it is absorbed

Insulation – An excellent thermal insulator, heat loss through the floor is significantly reduced as is heat loss from one’s feet so improving energy efficiency

Indoor air quality –  Humidity and airborne toxins are absorbed so indoor air quality is greatly improved

Fire safety – Naturally fire retardant, it does not support combustion

Safety –  Soft and forgiving, it has high slip resistance , cushions falls and reduces the potential for injury

Environmental properties – It is a natural product, grown on sheep grazing in open countryside.  It is also a sustainable raw material as well as being biodegradable. The production of wool fibre has a lower impact upon the environment than synthetic fibres used in carpet.

Flexibility – Easy to dye, it produces high colour definition and lustre.  It can also be blended with synthetic fibres to enhance durability.

Ease of maintenance –  Wool is naturally ‘soil hiding’ and so appears cleaner

Health – Airborne dust is reduced and allergens trapped prior to removal by routine vacuum cleaning
